I don't think it's a packaging system problem; I can't get either ezm3
version 1.1 or version 1.2 to build from source. I suspect it's a
problem with ezm3's "FreeBSD 4 bootstrap kit" - possibly it makes undue
assumptions about the stat structures.
I see no reason to suspect that PM3's or CM3's FreeBSD 4 bootstrap would
work any better.
What's even more worrisome is that 'fetch' just gave me the following error:
Syntax error, command unrecognized
The same command works fine on a FreeBSD 4.9 box.
